Planning permission has been received to progress with the construction of the mixed use development consisting of 67 apartments and a ground floor retail unit fronting Harold’s Cross Road. There will be a ramped vehicular access from Harold’s Cross Road into the basement, which will accommodate car parking, bicycle parking, refuse stores and plant rooms. The external areas will receive boundary treatments and are to be landscaped.
We will issue monthly updates on this page which will inform local residents and interested parties of the progress of the project and upcoming works in the next period.
Our expected programme for the project and key activity start dates are :
There will be limited activity following the completion of the demolition until Feb 2020
While the demolition and enabling works are being done, access for lorries onto site will be via Fitzpatrick Lane and Gate 1. We expect this to be approximately 3 lorries per day. We will permit Workers vehicles to park on site during this period, which should be no more than about 4 vehicles. Following the completion of the piling works, no workers will be permitted to park on the site.
Once piling commences, access onto the site will be via a gate to the north of the site directly off Harold’s Cross Road Gate 2. This access will remain throughout the project, but deliveries to this gate will stop once the basement is constructed. Deliveries will then revert back to Fitzpatricks Lane. Deliveries in the lane will be managed, ensuring no vehicles park or stack up in the lane and move onto the site. Deliveries will be restricted to Rigid body lorries. No Articulated delivery trucks will be permitted.
We will be encouraging workers to use public transport and cycling to get to work.
The site will be open and operational during the following hours:
The existing partially demolished Rosie O’ Grady’s Pub and adjacent buildings will be demolished in the next few weeks. Demolished materials will be recycled wherever possible. Material will be taken off site in skips, expected to be one to two skips a day for a two week period. The blocks and concrete rubble will be crushed on site for re-use as a piling mat.
Preparatory works for the diversion of the stormwater culvert crossing the site will start in January 20.
